Member Groups/Titles
« on: April 10, 2013, 12:57:47 am »
Hi,

I don't like the way the post count based membergroups/titles also apply to Administrators and Moderators. How do I go about making them apply only to regular members (I don't like the looks of an Admin with the "Newbie" title.. would like the progressive titles to only be for non-staff users)?

Thanks.

Go in admin center> member groups.
you can take off post count by deleting all the bottoms one that show post ranks. modify will let you rename and make them as you wish [color,rank picture ect] so you can change the newbie one to regular member or whatever you wish.

hope this helps

So there's no way to keep the post-count ones but just make them not apply to the admins/moderators?

So that admins always have the Administrator title, moderators always have the Moderator title, and then all the members have the post-count titles.
Can't do that?

If u meant that , u want the Administrator rank but not to show them to other members then go to member list > select the member you want to make moderator but not to show the moderator rank > Set the primary member group to (No primary membergroup) > Click [Show additional groups] > Then tick the rank which you want to give to the user.

If you didn't meant that I'm sorry :P

Hmm actually I was just wondering if there's a way to keep post-count titles without them applying to administrators (so that normal members go Newbie > Techy > Expert > Wiz but admins always just say Admin), but within your solution I've found a fix for this.

I added an additional membergroup - not post count based, called Forum Staff and I just applied that to Admin and Mod ranks as well so on their posts it says "Administrator" and below that it says "Forum Staff"... slightly redundant but better than the admins being called newbies and members hah. So the additional membergroup overrides the post-count titles which is good news.

Thanks :)

Glad you've sorted it! I didn't like the titles at all, so disabled them. I certainly didn't want to be known as a Newbie when I started the forum!
